Goodness gracious, is that correct ? Well Syed, what can I say, you just shocked me out of my wits ! :roll:
Up north, a "good"(!) pre-owned piece goes for 1.60 - 1.80L approximately , last I inquired .

I booked this pistol from gsf in Jan 2010. I was asked to make a final payment before May 2011. I sent the final payment of 80117 on 3rd may 2011 and i still haven't received a delivery date. Now website states that the supply is stopped till last week of July. I dunt know how long i have to wait.

I wish i would have opted for revolver

Link for booking the Civilian Pistol .32 cal ......

http://gsf.gov.in/index.php?id=60&pid=3

One has to buy the pistol and its magazine separately :shock:

Pistol @ Rs.83303 /-
Magazine @ Rs.2814 /-
Total Rs. 86117 /-

Another interesting thing is that on their website, they are not calling it Ashani anymore !!

'Civilian Pistol'.... that's about as imaginative as it can get....at least it's not pretentious.

I guess they should rename the INSAS... soldier rifle.

Hi,

Booking for pistol has been started on http://gsf.gov.in/ . Website has all new information about booking and now we can see the delivery reports as well.

Pistol delivery will start from 1 August . I am so frustrated my priority number is still missing from the list even after 18 months of booking. I hope i am on September delivery list.

Regards

ace wrote:I send the application with Rs 25000 DD and the required documents to GSF Cossipore on 19 Apr 11 for booking a .32 pistol. Today, I got the application returned back along with a covering letter dated 04/05/2011 saying that " due to introduction of e-booking system wef 01/04/2011, your application is returned herewith unactioned with a request to visit our website gsf.gov.in for e-booking which will be made operative soon. Inconvinience is deeply regretted."

I have checked every search engine/site/link etc. etc. but there is no website in this URL or for that matter in any name for GSF Cossipore. Apparently this is a joke being played on the hapless customers by the babus at the GSF. They can afford to play such pathetic jokes on the customers due the GSF's brutal monopoly and strict control on imports. There is a long waiting list of around one and half years to get allotted with such an astronomically priced piece of shoddy workmanship.

The day Govt allows import of fire arms (like pre-1986), I am sure every single applicant will cancell the order placed with the GSF. That day, I will donate my IOF Ashani Pistol (if I get one) to be melted for making latrine buckets for Tihar Jail inmates and buy a world class pistol of my choice. But till then will keep searching for that elusive web site!!!! Is there anybody else who is in a simillar state?
